Summer 2016 Humanities Internships
Each year the College of Arts and Sciences and CURF fund approximately twenty-five summer research internships as part of a summer institute for University of Pennsylvania students in the humanities and social sciences. Internships provide undergraduate students with an apprentice position in a cultural, historical, or archival setting. Unless otherwise noted, these full-time (30 hrs/week) internships are for a period of up to ten weeks and include a stipend of $3,300. The stipend will be paid in two equal installments on June 30 and August 31.
January 19th 4:00-5:00pm
Fireside Lounge, 2nd Floor, ARCH Building
